    Calculation widget, request: The capability of using the matrix cells as operands to insert into the calculation and inserting the result into the cel

    Asked by CitygateBmth on March 20, 2014 at 07:17 AM

    Would you be open to adding Matrix elements to this widget (which is great, by the way)?

    We use them in a couple of forms (example here: http://resources.citygatechurch.net/forms/porform.html ) and they're really useful for collecting data with columns for prices.

    It would be really useful if we could add matrix cells to calculations.

    This is a re-post of a comment on Introducing Field Calculations for Forms

    So far, I've used matrix cells as operands (with the totals appearing in number or text fields below). But I'm working on a form at the moment that will use the cells as both operands and for returning the totals into (it's going to look a bit like a spreadsheet).

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I have opened a feature request ticket so that it can be assigned to one of our developers if they agree this can be implemented.

    We cannot give you any ETA of when this will be implemented, but be sure that we will update via this thread if any information is available about this.

    Hi there, does this mean that I could apply calculations to a matrix form like the one identified here:



    Or is this still not possible?


    If it IS possible, how??


    Thank you!
